I stayed here on 04/12/13 overnight whilst in London for a meeting. When I read the reviews I was concerned but I needn't have been.
Like most reviews on here, there is the review, the hotel perception and the reality somewhere in the middle.
The room was clean, bed comfortable, if not a bit cramped. However, I was only sleeping there so as long as the bed, room and bathroom were clean, which they were, I wasn't too fussed.
The room was on the Lower Ground floor, and when I entered it was like a sauna. However, I went over to the radiator and turned it down. Problem solved.
The only significant time I spent there was just before bed, and so I watched the TV which had a great picture and several satellite channels to choose from.
There was free wifi which worked fine and was quick, with tea making facilities and a bottle of water, which I didn't use.
The bathroom was reasonably modern, more modern than the rest of the room, and was spacious enough.
Breakfast was a choice of full english or continental, and choice of a pot of tea or coffee. I had the full english and it was tasty and hit the spot.
Only complaint I had was that I thought it was only slightly over priced for the quality at £105 but taking into account the area it is in, I can understand why, and I didn't feel ripped off by it.
Only negative thing I read that I would agree with is the stairs down to the Lower Ground floor. You open the door directly onto the downward stairs, on a corner, so it was tricky with the one bag I had, and so I;d guess if you had heavier luggage than me, it could be a wee bit tricky to negotiate, and could potentially lead to an accident if the person opening the door didn't realise this, as it's not that clear despite there being a window in the door.
All in all, nowhere near as bad as some reviews have said, as long as all you are looking for is a clean comfortable bed and bathroom as a base. If you're expecting luxury and spacious comfort, then this probably isn't the hotel for you.
